India can help create jobs in U.S.: Pitroda

New Delhi: National Knowledge Commission Chairman Sam Pitroda said Friday India can help create jobs in the U.S. by providing alternative training.

"Everyone's focus in U.S. is on job creation. To create jobs you need to provide alternative training to the people. I think India can help U.S. in retraining people," Pitroda told reporters on the sidelines of a conclave organised by the Indian Institutes of Technology alumni group, PanIIT.

He said business will be on top of the agenda of U.S. President Barack Obama's India visit. "Our market is more attractive to them in terms of business and selling products and services. He is spending two days in Mumbai so I am sure on his agenda business is big piece."

Pitroda, who also heads the National Innovation Council, said Obama's visit provides a "unique" opportunity to India and the U.S. to strengthen their economic and political relations.

"It is a unique opportunity. Excitement is very high. Expectations are very high on both sides and I hope we can take our relationship to next level."

Asked whether India would raise outsourcing issue during Obama's visit, Pitroda said: "outsourcing is not the only job. There are a lot of other things. If it makes business sense to them they will do it. If it doesn't make business sense they won't do it and we won't do it."

"It is not about going back to what it was. It is about creating new future. If you think about going back to what it was there isn't much to be done," he added.

Obama, visiting India from Nov 6-9, is scheduled to address business meetings in Mumbai during his two-day stay in the India's financial capital.
